Build Your Own Splash Pages

I have gone back to surfing in the traffic exchanges lately and it blows me away how many people are using services (and some even PAYING for them), just to create cute little splash pages for their visitors. The truth is, you can do a pretty nice job with free tools you can download online and the information they contain is the SAME.

I use Xheader for the top, Arachnophilia 4.0 to do the copy and w3schools as a reference for any HTML commands I need. You can learn to do this by watching free tutorials on YouTube and save your money by providing your own service.

The big advantage of a slightly larger splash page is you can educate your visitors a little and increase your chances of them taking action. For an example, look at

I host dozens of these small pages on my own hosting for $1 a month.

Blogger Comments

I have been tempted to abandon this blog many times, but it's worth keeping around just for the times you want to comment on another blogspot or add yourself as a follower. So here I am again, cleaning out all the obsolete posts and making a few new ones to test my new service to get top listings in Google.

The basic idea is when I am surfing the net and come across a blogspot (Blogger blog owned by Google) I can make an intelligent comment to attract people back to my own blog. It's much simpler if my blog is a blogspot too, then I can have links to my other blogs if they get interested. Make sense?

See you online!

Interesting Blog

While I surf other blogs, I always have my eye out for interesting content that can help anyone trying to promote their own blog. I found one just this morning if you might be interested, I thought he had several good ideas there.

Anti-Malware 2010

I have heard from a few others that have seen this show up and decided to share my experience too. I was infected a few weeks ago and had to resort to reformatting my system and installing everything over again, a painful process as some of you know all too well.

It shows up as a warning message that you have Malware discovered on your computer and they need to do a scan, which of course scares the bejabbers out of you when they come up with loads of garbage showing your machine is completely taken over and the only way out is to send them money. DON'T!!

The truth is they will just continue to milk you and not fix a thing.
You can try to learn about it HERE, but I ended up reformatting.

After I got that Windows computer all cleaned up, I started using Ubuntu Linux and have not had a problem since. Oh I still see the warning and scan screens, but since I am not on Windows they can't get in.

You can get a CD to run it without changing anything else, install it as a dual boot with Windows, or just put it in another computer like I did. It's real handy to have a second system at times anyway. Now anytime I do surfing duties online, I use the Linux computer to be safe. Don't fool yourself into thinking you can protect yourself with software, the bad guys are getting too aggressive for that.

I have played around with Linux for years, but this one is so simple anyone can use it.

See you online!

Link Referral Directory

One of the best ways to increase your EntreCard credits is by getting referrals. An easy place to accomplish that is on the free Link Referral Directory, where you can easily find other bloggers that might be interested in more traffic. Just make sure your drop widget is in a prime location on your blog (upper left corner is best) to stimulate curiosity and let it do the job for you. In the meantime, you are expanding your contacts and leaving more comments. I still think interaction is the key to making money online and this is one of the best deals around to maximize your time invested in doing it.

To go even further, use the search function to find blogs to visit and it will send an email telling how they were found. So just make sure your description gets you a top listing for that search term and when curiosity brings them to type it in, you will be there. I assure you, this works.

This is only the tip of the iceberg, as there are many more strategies that work well there. The basic task is to visit 30 websites, review 5 of them and make one a favorite. Then make at least one contributory post in their forum to get a high listing in your chosen category. The whole job can be done in as little as 15 minutes a day and you will see more traffic every day you do this.

See you over there!
